One of my co-workers brought me this hot pad to work and wanted to know if I could make her some more. Her aunt had made some for her 30 years ago as a wedding gift. People were very frugal back then and we decided that the insulation was long john scraps.
To make a hot pad now, you need something called Insul-Bright a Warm and Natural Batting. As you can see it looks very insulated.
This is my version of hotpads for my friend. She is a real dog lover so this is what I made her. They are 8 1/2 inch square. The loop is 1 1/2 inches x 5 inches folded in half and folded towards center again to make a strip like bias tape. I made all three in one night. They were very easy to make.
Tomorrow I am posting a picture of a gable box I decorated for a friend to put goodies in.
